The Irish Military War Museum and family park,offers a fascinating insight into Irish participants' involvement in both World War One and World War Two, as well as other military conflicts in world history. The Irish Military War Museum, covering 5,000 square feet of floor space, will represent a distinctly non-political but 'must see' educational and historical resource for people of all ages and from right across the island of Ireland and beyond.

We visited the museum at my husbands request. It was super interesting. It’s a private collection turned into a museum. The most interesting part was the helmet collection.
